kicked out the window
in my back door
to see the snow fall
will they let me in
when i've been so bad

i'll just run away
i can't come out and play
dont worry, it'll get better soon
dad'll come home and
kick you to the moon

play catch with my head
you'll find it in the sink
with last nights grub
heading down the hole
where the alligators live
and i'll set out on the street
with no shoes upon my feet
got my socks and toothbrush
and nothin else

i'm runnin away
did you miss me
i'll be back soon
when i'm not as dumb
maybe i'll learn to pick the thorns
outta my head

chew your words
twenty times before you speak
and listen up before i make you sleep
you've got all ya need
so don't tell me nothin

nothings wrong with you

don't run away
we're gonna miss you
don't run away
who'll we have to play with
if you run away
gonna miss you
don't think we'll ever find you

hey, is that the kid?
we all knew.. johnny mercer

johnny mercer where are you
now i'm going to the moon
will we ever meet again
thanks for coming to my

    Song Meaningthis song is apparently a true story of young joe running away in a snowstorm with no shoes on after breaking the sliding back door to his somewhat strict father's boise home - word is he got like two blocks before the cold sent him running home - johnny mercer was his childhood sandbox buddy - his location and status remain unknown
